PK 005 From Hollywood to Hackathons: Inside Startups w/ Cooper Harris, Founder at Klickly
6 days ago
Our guest today is Cooper Harris, who not only has an impressive background, but has an impressive background in two different fields!
She started her career in New York, where she landed a part in the soap opera, As The World Turns. But she eventually moved to Los Angeles and stepped into the Hollywood scene.
After appearing in several movies and other TV shows, Harris became interested in entrepreneurship and started attending hackathons.
Harris won the AT&T Hackathon in Los Angeles, and then went on the first Innovation and Tech Summit during the Sundance film festival, called Collective. UKTI Innovation Award, alongside Will.I.Am from the Black Eyed Peas.
And in February of 2015, she started a company named Klickly, an impulse buying platform and SaaS (or software as a service) product. It's built for those of us with very short attention spans. Her technology allows one touch purchases across social streams, and in emails.
You can learn more about her company at Klickly.com, spelled KLICKLY and you can reach her @CooperHarris on twitter.
Here's what you'll learn in this conversation I recorded at Klickly headquarters in Venice, California with award-winning entrepreneur and actress, Cooper Harris:
1.) The importance of having good story-telling skills as a tech entrepreneur.
2.) How to convince people to meet with you.
3.) Tips for perfecting your pitch.
